Hello, my name is Geralda, 59 years of age. Originally I'm Dutch but I moved to Hungary almost 2 years ago. I live by my self but together with my 10 dogs, 3 emoes, my talking parrot Loeki and some rabbits, birds, chicken, peacocks en 4 cats. I have a small house in a rural area about 70 km south of Budapest. There are some nice villages en city's nearby. I am very creative and did a lot already in and around the house but my age and my muscles are working against me :-( so there is some maintenance and work that I myself am not able to do unfortunately. Most houses in Hungary are made out of clay, like the house I'm living in. The house needs maintenance and painting. It is not a difficult job but you need energy and muscles, with I lack both at the moment. Also the garden needs some work and some other tasks. I really could use some help with these tings.
There are plenty things to do in the area and the climate is warm during the summer. For people that do not have transportation I am willing to take you to the nearby railway or bus station so you can co on outings. I have a small guesthouse where you can stay. toilet and shower are inside the main house. You should not be afraid of dogs :-) but all my dogs are very sweet. A lot of peace an quite and nature surrounding my house. In the village where I live is a small grocery shop, the nearest bigger village is in 7 km. You can also stay with me if you have a camper/caravan or tent, plenty of room. Hope to welcome you soon.
DIY and building projects
They can learn the Hungarian culture and explore Hungary. They can also learn from the work they do. I can share my Dutch culture with them and tell them about my period that I lived in West Africa. They can also learn about the animals that are living with me. I have a lot of live experiences and lived in several countries during my life. So sharing life experiences. I am a good listener and I am a good adviser I think.
Maintenance on the house (outside). the house needs filling up the gabs and painting, all the materials and tools available. Some carpeting work, I need a garbich shed and a place to put the firewood. The garden/partly trees needs maintenance, also some fences that needs maintenance .
